The invincible Guinea Bissau wrestler Augusto Tchouda alias OGIS is still proving stubborn over his Gambian rivals. After signing four combats he still remains unbeaten. Last Saturday it only took him two minutes to defeat Tyson, the Armed Forces wrestler.
Speaking to Pointsport shortly after the bout, OGIS said he is ready to take any Gambian wrestler who is confident of himself in the arena, but to the surprise of many no one among the Gambian wrestlers was keen enough to challenge him both from the Jola and Serere camp.
For his part the president of the wrestling association assured the general public that his association will bring wrestling back, noting that it is part of their plans to tour all the regions to organise wrestling, adding that they will expose Gambians both locally and internationally.
Mr Jarjue pointed out that now both the referees and technicians have been trained on the new techniques of wrestling.
He said now every week they will sign big time wrestlers and urge wrestlers to take their profession seriously.
